What an incredible experience to be "up close and personal" with a sea lion. These gentle giants are like giant swimming "puppies". They are affectionate and communicate verbally with you and each other in mind blowing ways! For those who have already done the Dolphins, or if you are considering the "whole package" I'd urge you to strongly consider experiencing... More

I was somewhat disappointed with this excursion. Prior to your interaction, you sit with your group to listen to an educational talk about the sea lions. The girl giving the presentation pretty much blew through her memorized speech, so we basically got nothing out of that because it was too hard to follow her. I was not impressed with the... More

The Sea Lions are beautiful! Staff is excellent and can answer any questions you ask. The housing for the sea lions is well maintained and easily viewed by guests.

I had a nice vacation in Paradise Island, Bahamas. I went to the Sea Lion Encounter at Blue Lagoon in Nassau with my nephew. It was a great experience interacting with the sea lions in a protected lagoon.

It was nice to see the seals that were lost during Hurricane Katina, They found after the storm they were from Biloxi, Miss and this place took them in and looks like they got a good place

I really enjoyed this. The staff were great and informative. Our sea lions were Jack and Maggie. They were amazing. Would do this again.

We did the sealion encounter as a shore excursion through a Royal Caribbean cruise. It was lots of fun. The guides were very friendly. The only drawback was the extreme cost of the excursion and then they hit us with a huge price to get any pictures. We are not allowed to use our own camera, so they have us... More

While visiting Nassau on a family cruise we shelled out a pretty penny to experience sea lions up close. Not knowing what it was going to be like I was concerned with the cost, but it was well worth the money. We got to meet two sea lions. It was an educational program as well as being able to interact... More

The trip to the Blue Lagoon took longer than expected and was uneventful. The staff was rude and at best just not friendly. The sea lions were adorable interacting with them was fun. The entire interaction lasted less than 1 hour. We waited longer to get the overpriced photos than we spent with the sea lions. I'm certainly glad I... More

We actually returned to Blue Lagoon for a 2nd day after swimming with the dolphins the day before. The sea lions were so cute and funny! We thoroughly enjoyed our time with them, but honestly there wasn't much of a price difference between the sea lions and the dolphins and my personal preference would be the dolphins hands down! But... More
